The Little Shop of Horrors (1960)

Movie Released: 1960 in b/w | DVD Release Date: July 1, 2008

 

dvd_the_little_shop_of_horrorsThe Little Shop of Horrors was produced in 1960 on $28,000 budget (according to my research the budget ranged between $24,000 and $30,000 — so your guess is as good as mine.) Directed by the legendary Roger Corman, this movie was produced within two days. Corman decided to use an earlier film setting that was due to be torn down in the next two days.

The movie is a horror-themed, black comedy B-movie that gained a cult following. The theme is said to be inspired by the novella Green Thoughts by John Collier and the science fiction short story The Reluctant Orchid by Arthur C. Clarke. In 1982, The Little Shop of Horrors was turned into an Off-Broadway, horror comedy rock musical and in 2003, it debuted as a Broadway production. If you don’t mind spoilers, continue reading.

dvd_the_brain_that_wouldnt_dieProduced in the 1960s on a $ 64,000 budget, The Brain That Wouldn’t Die, belongs to the typical “it’s so bad — it’s good” category and makes this black-and-white science fiction, horror movie a cult classic.
